The recall indicates that pressure from the metal pot holder against the coffee/tea maker can cause the glass to break unexpectedly potentially causing burns or cuts.
IKEA has received one report in the U.S. of a glass coffee/tea maker breaking in which no injuries were reported. There have reportedly been 19 additional reports of breakage resulting in injuries in some cases outside of the U.S.
The recall involves the FÖRSTÅ coffee/tea makers sold in sizes 0.4 and 1 liters. The items included in the recall have the supplier number 20325, "IKEA," and "Made in China" etched on the bottom of the metal holder. They were sold nationwide from January 2010 through December 2010 for between $6 and $10.
Anyone with one of these coffee/tea makers should immediately stop using it and return it to any IKEA store for a full refund.
